Yeovil Railway Centre

Overview

The Centre was formed in 1994 to preserve the original Southern Railway turntable installed in the late 1940’s and to provide facilities for main line steam. Since then the turntable has been overhauled and visitors can watch, from a special viewing platform, the spectacle of large steam engines being turned and serviced when they call at Yeovil Junction. An Andrew Barclay steam engine ‘Lord Fisher’ is currently operational and provides the power for public rides on the demonstration line of approximately a third of a mile. Visitors ride either in a historic brake van or in a coach. There are several industrial diesels on site.

Special Events (including Model Railway, Tractors and Halloween and Santa Specials) operate on a regular basis. Please check their website for latest events and opening hours.
